Serbian / European Food Festival

Bring your fam­i­ly and friends to enjoy this unique din­ing expe­ri­ence — the best in home­made Ser­bian and Euro­pean food and pastries.

While Ser­bian music plays in the back­ground and the kids’ frol­ic in the jump house, you can dine in a hos­pitable atmos­phere and then browse through the dis­plays of books, icons, and crafts. Eth­nic danc­ing will fur­ther high­light the event bring­ing you even clos­er to the tra­di­tions of the “old country.”

All are wel­come and will be made to feel right at home!

God’s Spectacular Wave Symphony and the Essence of Human Nature

God’s Spectacular Wave Symphony and the Essence of Human Nature

God’s Spec­tac­u­lar Wave Sym­pho­ny and the Essence of Human Nature: A lec­ture by the Ortho­dox Chris­t­ian physi­cist Michael Prav­i­ca, Ph.D., Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor of Physics at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Neva­da, Las Vegas

Divine Litur­gy would be at 10 AM, fol­lowed by a cheva­pi BBQ lunch, and the lecture.

When: June 11, 2017
Where: Parish Cen­ter at 2148 Michel­son Dri­ve, Irvine, CA

Abstract: Niko­la Tes­la once stat­ed: “If you want to find the secrets of the uni­verse, think in terms of ener­gy, fre­quen­cy, and vibra­tion.” Our world is full of beau­ti­ful vibrat­ing waves of myr­i­ad fre­quen­cies that rep­re­sent prop­a­gat­ing and con­fined ener­gy. Yet waves can often also be viewed as par­ti­cles (such as the quan­tum par­ti­cle of light known as the pho­ton) and vice ver­sa (e.g. the elec­tron). Adding to this mys­tery is the uncer­tain­ty prin­ci­ple of quan­tum mechan­ics which states that the posi­tion of a par­ti­cle and momen­tum (mass times veloc­i­ty) can­not be simul­ta­ne­ous­ly deter­mined. All of these phe­nom­e­na cou­ple with­in our brains to enable our cre­ativ­i­ty, con­nect us with phys­i­cal real­i­ty, and may explain many aspects of human behav­ior. They also enable us to tran­scend four-dimen­sion­al space­time into the meta­phys­i­cal realm. This talk will explain dif­fer­ent kinds of waves and offers mech­a­nisms to par­tial­ly explain our amaz­ing cre­ativ­i­ty, our spec­trum of intel­li­gence, and how we can res­onate with the Cre­ator of this amaz­ing sym­pho­ny. There will also be a demon­stra­tion of var­i­ous waves (such as sound waves) to accom­pa­ny the lecture.
